Online Education Provider Implements Five9 Cloud-Based Software To Support Services For 125,000 Active Students

Five9 Selected For Oracle Service Cloud Integration, Rapid Deployment and Custom Reporting



SAN RAMON, CALIF. – April 4, 2016 – Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), a leading provider of cloud software for the enterprise contact center market, announced today that an online education provider, supporting 125,000 active students, has implemented the Five9 Virtual Contact Center (VCC). The customer chose Five9 to help manage the contact center’s engagement with student support services.


The education provider, which offers contact center support for admissions, student care, financial services, and the educational group, had also recently deployed Oracle Service Cloud. The organization was previously operating on a legacy contact center infrastructure and had difficulty integrating the system with Oracle. In addition, there was difficulty obtaining flexible reporting by function, which made Workforce Management (WFM) and adherence impossible for their needs. The legacy solution hindered their ability to keep up with admissions and student care while experiencing long IT turnaround times for implementing simple changes. Five9 introduced a rapid deployment, along with the ability to demonstrate solutions for each of the customer’s challenges. This education provider has implemented the full Five9 suite for inbound IVR/ACD calls, outbound campaign dialing, as well as Five9 Workforce Optimization (WFO) powered by NICE.


Primary reasons Five9 was chosen include:

  • Oracle Service Cloud integration
  • Comprehensive WFO & Analytics
  • Rapid deployment


"At Five9 we take pride in delivering strong, yet easy to implement integrations with all of our partners. The Five9 solutions, which are reliable and secure, help organizations like this provide better services to their customers,” said Mike Burkland, President and CEO, Five9.
